…spooky woman from the 1940s wearing long robes out in the woods next to a boulder, yeah.”
I purchased the above photograph for $3 at Fairlook Antiques during my most recent trip to Seattle. There was no way this one was staying in the store. I had to take it home with me so I could figure out what the picture reminds me of. I’ve had it for three weeks and I still haven’t figured it out. Here’s what I know:
- Sometime within the last decade (5 or 6 years, more likely) a band released an album that featured a similar image on its front cover. A long-haired woman wearing robes outdoors. I think she might’ve had a sword held upright over her head. Or pointing toward the foreground. That sounds like death metal imagery, but I think the release in question was fairly mainstream.
I don’t remember anything else. Does that sound familiar to you? I hope it rings a bell with someone out there. If not, I’ll probably have to carry the photo around with me and show it to all the area record store clerks. I really don’t want to be that guy.
